You know what it’s like.  You see an outfit on your favourite celebrity/style icon on the latest newsfeed & you automatically want it, right? Of course you do.

What’s the betting that it’s actually the week before payday & that Chanel bag that they’re carrying is far beyond your wildest financial dreams? Still with me?

Well, that’s what happened when I saw Myleene Klass wearing a gorgeous black and white scuba dress, accessorised with a Chanel bag & of course, the Louboutin’s.  Well to be honest, I loved the dress, but didn’t want to fork out the £62.00 for it (sorry Myleene!).

Tesco to the rescue! Yes, that’s right. The place where you go to get your milk, eggs & bathroom cleaner. They also do clothes.  The supermarket’s these days have had to step up their game to keep ahead of the pack & whilst I was picking up some food shopping, I automatically went to view their clothes.

For £25.00, I picked up more or less the same dress.  Teamed with my DKNY bag, Marc Jacobs sunnies & my black Michael Kors heels, I think it’s a pretty good High Street carbon copy!

It just goes to show that you CAN get that celebrity style without breaking the bank, AND whilst picking up a loaf of bread & a chocolate bar on your way out!

The Burberry Mac.

You know the one. It’s so cool even Brooklyn Beckham has one.

THE stable piece to every wardrobe. With a price tag of over £1,000.00.

A little steep huh!

Well, in steps The GAP. The typically American store founded in the 60’s, where their cool, laid back casual style always seems to pull me in.

I had been eying up their beige Mac for MONTHS. Then to my delight, I spotted it on sale (50% off!).  So for £34.95, I had found the perfect mac to get me through the up & coming April showers!

Yes, it’s not Burberry, BUT it’s just as cute, & won’t put a dent in your bank balance!
